It’s about SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM v.13 software, with SIMATIC S7-1200 1212CAC/DC/RLY hardware.
When I try to start PLCSIM v.13 SP1,with TIA PORTAL on Windows 7 64 bits, I get the following error message:
Fig 1. Error message
Also when I try to go in Simulation Mode on Tia portal, there was also an error message: Тhe totally integrated automation portal has encountered a problem and needs to close
